, ronald reagan on everything from tax increases to death ceiling increases to banning assault weapons. the only thing they claim to admire as much as him, is the first president, lincoln, if they heard lincoln say this in the first inaugural address they would have booed him. "no organic law can ever be framed with the provision applicable to every situation. no foresight can anticipate nor any document of reasonable length contain express provisions for all possible questions. that is abraham lincoln calling the constitution organic law. and saying that the constitution could not possibly have anticipated our every governing question. i invite you to imagine if you will, just close your eyes and just imagine the right wing . . >>> welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the conservatives are whining about president obama's speech. it's just too liberal. i say welcome to the mainstream. let's get to work. >> it's morning again in america. >> the era of liberalism is back. >> the country is awake to the new center left america, and conservative elites can't stand it. >> the republican

be sure to see a litany of anti-coal regulations, tax hikes, anti-second amendment bills, forced unionization bills and crazy new deficit spending. it's the same old mitch mcconnell, same operation. and he will block president obama's agenda. it's basically selling out the efforts of the progressives in this country, in my opinion. let's turn to senator bernie sanders of vermont, who is the only member of the democratic caucus to vote against the so-called filibuster reform. senator, good to have you with us tonight. i'd like you to respond to that fundraising letter of mitch mcconnell. i mean, are things going to change? are we going to see the same old mitch? >> look, at the end of the day, what that legislation did is made it easier for some cabinet appointees to take their jobs. that's important. it's going to speed up the process in the senate. that's important. but at the end of the day, ed, this country faces enormous economic crises. we've got to deal with global warming. we've got to deal with education. we have to deal with deficit reduction. we are not going to be able

to be able to tax wall street now. minimum wage, that's out the door, raising that. workers' rights. and you know what this is all about in my opinion? this is about guns. harry reid knows that 51 votes would be available for the assault weapons ban but he knows damn well there won't be 60 and he doesn't want to hang this on the democratic party at all to all these rural senators. that's who he's protecting in this. but he is not standing up for the people at all. i just -- i don't know what kind of message can we send at this point? >> i think we send a message of total determination that as every issue is discussed and if mitch mcconnell has to sign off to put it on the floor, which is where we believe this lies, then on every issue we have to link this up and say you said if it wasn't functioning you would change it? 51 can change it. we're fighting to change it. and not let up for a minute. and the broader democracy initiative that we're a part of has got to go on on all the issues. >> this is another comment that struck me today. tpm asked senator dick durbin today if the deal would mak
